Olivia and her twin brother Aidan are heading alone back to Earth following the virus that wiped out the rest of their crew, and their family, in its entirety.

Publisher Description

What happens when love brings loss? When love brings lies? When love brings hate?

Olivia and her twin brother Aidan are heading alone back to Earth following the virus that wiped out the rest of their crew, and their family, in its entirety.

Nathan is part of a community heading in the opposite direction. But on their journey, Nathan's ship is attacked and most of the community killed. Only a few survive.

Their lives unexpectedly collided, Nathan and Olivia are instantly attracted to each other, deeply, head-over-heels - like nothing they have ever experienced.

But not everyone is pleased. Surrounded by rumours, deception, even murder, is it possible to live out a happy ever after . . . ?

Author Biography

Malorie Blackman has written over seventy books for children and young adults, including the Noughts & Crosses series, Thief and a science-fiction thriller, Chasing the Stars. Many of her books have also been adapted for stage and television, including a BAFTA-award-winning BBC production of Pig-Heart Boy and a Pilot Theatre stage adaptation by Sabrina Mahfouz of Noughts & Crosses. There is also a major BBC production of Noughts & Crosses, with Roc Nation (Jay-Z's entertainment company) curating the soundtrack as executive music producer. In 2005 Malorie was honoured with the Eleanor Farjeon Award in recognition of her distinguished contribution to the world of children's books. In 2008 she received an OBE for her services to children's literature, and between 2013 and 2015 she was the Children's Laureate. Most recently Malorie wrote for the Doctor Who series on BBC One, and the fifth novel in her Noughts & Crosses series, Crossfire, was published by Penguin Random House Children's in summer 2019.

Review

This is storytelling on a grand scale, with love, danger, treachery, jealousy and tragedy . . . I read it in two breathless sittings and I absolutely loved it -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller The former Children's Laureate is never afraid to tackle challenging issues . . . a thrilling love story Mail on Sunday - Children's Book of the Month Full of nail-biting adventure, interstellar conflict and then passion . . . keeps us guessing to the last.This is confident sci-fi saturated with emotional intensity -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times - Children's Book of the Week It all builds up to a terrific climax, the plotted emotions and action coming together in scenes of great tension . . . Chasing the Stars goes boldly where few YA titles have gone before: never before have I come across a book that's a combination of Star Trek, Ten Things I Hate About You and a murder mystery. What's not to like? -- Tony Bradman Guardian Malorie Blackman has a nature affinity for space tales and this shines through in her bold new novel . . . The ensuing gripping story has plenty of strong emotions to play with: love, hate, fear, jealousy and more than a dash of betrayal. It's a stylish tale and one ripe for a sequel Telegraph
